last night. really shortly after 9:00 p.m. was when dzhokhar tsarnaev was taken into custody and the result was quite extraordinary. people were cheering in the streets. i think probably cheers all over this nation for the end of this really a reign of terror for some 24 hours for the city of boston and its suburbs. but also, really since monday. let's go right now and talk about what the investigators are going to do as they get to the bottom of everything. the next move with mark rossini, he helped create the national counterterrorism center. thank you for joining me all the way from paris. we appreciate that. let's talk about what will happen with dzhokhar tsarnaev, now going to be questioned by the elite 450i value detainee interrogation group made up of a bunch of high-ranking officials, fbi, cia, defense department. beyond the obvious of why, mark, what are the first questions they will ask him? >> well, beyond the why, of course, is who directed you? did you do this upper the direction of a foreign government or foreign service group and then the questions will go from
the boston marathon bombing. moments ago the surviving suspect dzhokhar tsarnaev was charged with using a weapon of mass destruction among other federal charges. if convicted he could be sentenced to death. the mean the-year-old had his initial appearance before a judge in a boston hospital where he remained in serious condition. later this very hour, president obama and the city of boston as well as this nation will mark a moment of silence at 2:50 eastern time. the exact moment the first bomb exploded. bells will ring afterward. massachusetts governor deval patrick and thomas menino will be on hand of the neighborhood of 8-year-old vimd martin richard. also today the first funeral was held for the bombing victims. the capacity crowd mourned. krystle campbell, the 29-year-old at the finish line clearing on a friend. and later this evening, boston university will hold a memorial service for lu lingzi, the 23-year-old graduate, the student from china also killed in the blast. meanwhile as crews clean up the crime scene today, new questions about how the fbi interrogated tamerlan tsarnaev
-old dzhokhar tsarnaev, the surviving suspect in the boston marathon bombing. and this ten-page criminal complaint is big news for two reasons. it's news for the incredible details of the allegations contained within it, and it is news because of the simple fact that it exists. let's start with the news. the complaint describes in heart stopping detail exactly what authorities -- of the bombing itself. quote, approximately 30 seconds before the first explosion, dzhokhar tsarnaev lifts his phone to his ear as if he is speaking on his cell phone and keeps it there for approximately 18 seconds. a few seconds after he finishes the call, the large crowd of people around him can be seen reacting to the first explosion. virtually every head turns to the east towards the finish line and stares in that direction in apparent bewilderment and alarm. dzhokhar appears calm. he glance to the east and calmly begin but rapidly begins moving to the west. he walks away without his knapsack, having left it on the ground where he had been standing. approximately ten seconds later, an explosion occurs in the
of the weekend. we know that the fbi is interrogating dzhokhar tsarnaev. what are they hoping to get from him at this point? >> interrogating may be a bit of a grand word here, because it's certainly not the kind of interrogation they had planned, where they speak to someone. it's being conducted with notes and nods and because he can't speak, he's on a ventilator. so it's a very slow process. but during this period, their government is limited in terms of what they can ask him. because they're doing this public safety exception to the miranda rule. they've not advised him of his rights. so they can only ask about potential threats to public safety. were there other conspirators, other bombs out there, any reason to believe that public safety is in any way jeopardized. >> pete, one of the persons cited in terms of this idea that there may have been more violent plans on order at the hands of the brothers is this person who was hijacked by the brothers on thursday night. and the driver of a mercedes suv. we know that he's been cooperating with police. is there anything else that we know about
believe the 19-year-old man dzhokhar tsarnaev could be holed up. the crews are planning to wait him out. local police say they could continue through the weekend. nearby in cambridge, that is right near the home of the suspected bombers and their relatives, police plan to perform some sort of controlled explosion. also right now in southern massachusetts, the campus of umass dartmouth is being evacuated. the school has confirmed someone connected to the bombings is enrolled as a student there. we're trying to clear up those details for you. we know this began last night with reports of gunfire on the m.i.t. campus. police say the man shot and killed 26-year-old sean collier, an m.i.t. police officer, who was just sitting in his cruiser. his broad was riddled with several gunshots. the two men car jacked a mercedes suv at gunpoint. police began a chase while those suspects were throwing explosives from the vehicle. they reportedly told that owner of the car they were indeed the marathon bombers, but then miraculously they released the man unharmed. the pursuit moved to watertown. that is
that the authorities believe they know where dzhokhar tsarnaev is, the suspect in the white hat is. and concerns about a third relative, which explains the larger drag net, if you will, and why the entire greater boston area was asked to shelter in place. >> it could explain that, chuck, because there's a contradiction there. if they know where he is, why would they shut down the entire city of boston, which they did like less than an hour ago when governor patrick came out here. there's still a lot of unanswered questions here, but, first, i want to point out, chuck. we're right across at the watertown mall right across the street is the main staging area that you were referring to before. and earlier this morning and we've been here for hours now, we saw convoys of military humvees, buses filled with police, motorcycles, state police officers and all congregating in that staging area in the parking lot right behind us. there's a marshal's department store there. it looked to me at first like there was going to be some, they were planning for some sort of confrontation or assault, we haven't seen tha
is expected to be formally charged. we know dzhokhar tsarnaev is still in serious condition but talking to investigators mostly in writing because he's got a bullet wound to the throat. and the boston police commissioner has said he believes there could have been more attacks. >> there were over 200 rounds fired at the scene. they were armed with sidearms and explosive devices. one that has been widely publicized was one of the pressure cooker devices similar to what we saw on boylston street. >> and beyond any immediate threat or the question of motive, there is another question that is key to this investigation. as evidence mounts that the older brother, tamerlan tsarnaev took a radical turn, when exactly? what about that six-month trip to dagestan and chechnya. i want to bring in pete williams. good morning once again. i want to start with dzhokhar tsarnaev. do we know specifically beyond serious condition how he's doing and how much talking he's doing? >> well, very little talking because of his throat wound. serious but stable condition is the way they describe it. we have been tol
. >>> as soon as dzhokhar tsarnaev is medically available, he will be questioned by the federal government's elite high-value detainee interrogation group. so how do they get inside the mind of a terrorist? my next guest spent 30 years in counterterrorism and was the co-lead of the u.s.s. cole bombing investigation. joining me now in studio, robert mcfadden, former deputy assistant director for counterintelligence operations. let's go to what's happening inside that hospital room right now, this high-value detainee is being interviewed, if he can speak, which actually remains in question. what are the first things they need to find out. >> just going by my background and working some cases like this before, and with an acknowledgement that i'm going to have to come up with some different term that we remain in speculation territory. but in a case like this, first and foremost, is the medical question. he's got to be lucid, cleared by doctors, and then the interview will start. the very first thing, once a degree of rapport and accord is built with the young man will be any other plots. bec
, several republican senators today say they want dzhokhar tsarnaev tried as an enemy combat tant, not as a criminal defendant. >>> meanwhile, 53 people remain in boston hospitals today, three of them are in critical condition, including a 7-year-old girl. right now, we go to watertown, where the suspect, again, was captured last night. nbc's luke russert is standing by for us right now. luke, what's happening in watertown today? >> reporter: well, craig, it's really extraordinary. i will hold up a headline from the boston the globe, which says nightmare end, a fitting headline for all the residents of watertown. before i came into this hit with you, i went and walked through both of the crime scenes, the one where the secondment is was ultimately found in a boat and i went to where the big shootout was early friday morning and it's quite remarkable to see. this is very much a story of apple pie and chevrolet neighborhood, today, after all that horrific violence that happened in the community, all that fear that happened in the community, they were shutdown, families are out. you
. police cornered 19-year-old dzhokhar tsarnaev in a two-hour standoff. he was hiding in a boat in the backtown of a watertown home. he had been shot, he lost a lot of blood. this morning he is in a boston area hospital. at last check he was listed in serious condition. after his capture, massachusetts governor deval patrick and authorities praised police efforts and the community's cooperation. >> it was a very, very complicated case, a very challenging case, and there are still some questions remaining to be answered. but as the colonel said, because of that extraordinary collaboration and cooperation by all of these law enforcement resources and assets and more to the point people, professionals, who brought their "a" game, we have a suspect in custody tonight. >> the community stood strong. it was a call from a resident in watertown. we asked you to remain vigilant, and you did. we got that call and we got the guy. and so we can't thank you enough. you've done everything and more than we've asked. extremely proud of law enforcement today and what we've accomplished. >> this
the bombings. here's what we know this morning, suspect dzhokhar tsarnaev remains in serious condition at a boston hospital with gunshot wounds including one to his throat possibly from a suicide attempt. he has yet to be charged in connection with the attack or been notified of his miranda rights, however, this morning officials tell nbc news he's awake and using pen and paper to answer questions from investigators. all of this as the fbi says it has obtained surveillance footage showing tsarnaev putting down his backpack near the finish line just minutes before the explosion. massachusetts governor deval patrick says he's been briefed on the footage. >> the suspect took the backpack off, put it down, did not react when the first explosion went off and then moved away from the backpack in time for the second explosion, so pretty clear about his involvement and pretty chilling, frankly. >> all right, so while we wait on that video, i want you to look at these new infrared images released showing the final intense moments of the manhunt. stun grenades just exploded as police moved in to
that the community sort of begins to wrap its head around this, in so far as dzhokhar and tamerlan tsarnaev were part of the communities in which they lived. one was a wrestler, one was a boxer. >> can you state it a little louder, please? >> i was saying how does the community begin to wrap its head around what has happened. given the fact that two of the suspects, dzhokah tsarnaev and his brother, tamerlan tsarnaev, were very much part of the community in which they grew up. they went to local schools. one was competitive boxer, one was a wrestler. by all accounts they were you know, dzhokhar tsarnaev was seen as a nice guy, a shy guy in his high school. but liked. not an outcast by any means. you know how does a community begin to think of, begin to process something like this? >> well, it is what it is. you know people weren't, the fact that they are among us, humanity, some people who are, who are vicious and violent and morally deformed, we're aware of this. look at the people in texas are now experiencing the fact that you know, two prosecutors were murdered by a home-grown texan. people don't
." it is april 23rd. right to my first reads of the morning. >>> 19-year-old dzhokhar tsarnaev who was shot in the head, neck, leg and hands according to newly released documents, has been officially charged with using a weapon of mass destruction that resulted in three deaths and more than 170 injuries. he's also been charged with malicious destruction of property by means of an explosive device resulting in death. both charges carry the death penalty as a maximum sentence. tsarnaev was read his miranda rights in a brief bedside session in the intensive care unit at boston's beth israel hospital. the appearance began when a magistrate judge asked a doctor whether he was alert saying you can rouse him. according to a transcript of the appearance, tsarnaev nodded for times to questions but spoke just one word. when asked can you afford a lawyer, he answered simply -- no. the government says it has photographic evidence placing tsarnaev and his brother at the scene of the bombings as well as physical evidence tying them to the attacks. in the complaint the fbi says that at 2:38 p.m. on the da
guys are brothers. the man at large is dzhokhar tsarna, tsarnaev and looking to confirm his origin. >> according to mike barnicle and "the boston globe" reporting one of the suspects has lived here for some time, receiving some sort of high school scholarship. >> yeah. the city of cambridge awards a scholarship $2,500 to cambridge high school seniors and others who want to pursue higher education. according to the globe, the man at large, the 19-year-old in the white hat, in 2011, so just two years ago, was the recipient of one of these scholarships. that indicates he has lived in the cambridge area for some time. >> another piece of information that we have picked up over the hours here is that at some time, any time now, the police in boston will be conducting a controlled detonation at the area of calm in charles gate. this is according to their twitter site. i guess if anybody in the area hears something, not to be upset by it because this is a controlled detonation probably, as pete williams was telling us, probably one of the explosives or grenades that were thrown out of the
tonight that dzhokhar tsarnaev has told investigators he and his brother acted alone, they learned to build pressure cooker bombs over the internet, and were motivated by a desire to defend islam because of the wars in iraq and afghanistan. now, that early reporting may prove to be wrong. it may prove that the suspect retracts those statements later or maybe he's lying or he might be confused. but there is a small but significant cornerstone to build from that was not there before. we have left the realm of pure, complete speculation inside which would be frankly irresponsible to address questions of motives in the first place. in the case of dzhokhar tsarnaev even as we learn more about him and his life leading up to the bombing and what he is telling investigators, the question of why is intensely mysterious. if you spend some time on his twitter page as i did on the day it was first reported that he was a suspect, you'll find a teenager who mostly seems interested in stuff like weed, hip hop, girls, cars. it does not read like the twitter feed of someone who has completely devot
that dzhokhar tsarnaev, the one everybody is looking for, might be just a few blocks down here at an office complex. a security sensor had been -- had tipped off that there was, authorities, there was some intrusion that led everybody to think he was there. cars were zooming down here with screaming lights, and that turned out to be a wash. so i think that's just another reminder of how cautious we have to be until we know for sure where things stand. what we do know is he's on the loose. we do know -- we don't know -- there's no confidence that they know where he is and whether or not he has any accomplices. that may be an open question at this point. and probably the biggest open question of all is whether there are any more explosive devices, any ieds out there that he's left to maim and kill people that they don't know about. one was found in boston earlier today, and that may be the scariest singleknow, though, th police have been going door-to-door in this area all day. how far along do you think they are in securing the area? because as i understand it, at 12:30 when governor deval p
the surviving suspect, dzhokhar tsarnaev, who is now in the hospital. apparently he has a wound to the throat. did he try to commit suicide? >> i don't know the answer to that. >> do you know when doctors are saying he might actually be able to communicate? is there a real question about whether he'll be able to speak? >> i don't know those answers, david. i do know that he is in serious condition, but he's stable. and there are investigators prepared to interview him when he's able to be interviewed. >> the question about him coming onto the radar of the fbi two years ago. he was interviewed. he was tracked at the request of the russians, according to federal officials. these questions now, for you and authorities in massachusetts, have to raise some concerns, whether something was missed here? >> well, sure. there's a whole process here, and i think it was his brother, by the way, who was questioned by the fbi -- >> yes, forgive me. right. >> a whole host of questions, david, that you have, that i have, more to the point that the fbi, the atf, and other law enforcement agencies have and wil
the street. what they say they can see on the camera is the person identified as dzhokhar tsarnaev come into the view with his backpack on. he work his way into the crowd. he is talking on a cell phone. he appears to take the backpack off. then they say you can see the backpack at his feet in still photographs. then according to this video which the fbi has not released. this is merely a narrative description of it. the first bomb goes off. you can see everyone in the crowd that says except him. virtually everyone in the crowd look toward the first scene of the bombing. and he does not. he calmly waits, glances down eventually and then walks away about 10 to 13 seconds before the second bomb goes off which the fbi says he has just left on the ground. that's the first point. we learnt in the criminal complain, the most detailed description yet for the fbi. the key piece of video and photographs from all that material that they collected. the second point. they say both bombs in the marathon bombing were made from pressure cooker using a similar formula of low power explosive, bbs with ad
on the boston bombing case. the surviving subject, dzhokhar tsarnaev, remains hospitalized from bullet wounds but authorities say his condition has improved to fair today. authorities also tell nbc news that he has cooperated with them so far. he's told investigators that he and his brother acted alone in last week's bombings at the boston marathon, they had no contact with overseas terrorist groups. that's what he said. he said the brothers built the bomb with guidance from an online publication put out by the al qaeda off shoot in yemen called "inspire." it's written in english with instructions on how to build a bomb used last week. tsarnaev told authorities the motive for their attack has to do with their religious fervor, he and his brother, and anger over the united states' wars in afghanistan and iraq. meanwhile told we're seeing new images from that dramatic shooting in watertown at 1:00 a.m. friday morning. they come from an eyewitness whose apartment overlooked the fire fight. the brothers are seen there crouching behind a car. at least one of them seems to be firing. the car on the

details today about the suspects in the boston marathon bombing. ja h dzhokhar tsarnaev is listed in serious condition after he was taken into custody. the 19-year-old was found hiding in a boat parked outside a watertown home and there are new suspicions his older brother, who died in the shootout with police early friday morning, could have received terrorist training or support abroad. an official familiar with the matter tells nbc news that a foreign government has expressed concern back in 2011 that tamerlan tsarnaev could have ties to terrorism. the official says the fbi investigated but found no such links and reported the findings back to that foreign government. let's bring in msnbc analyst and former hostage negotiator james cavanagh. james, thanks for joining me again and great work yesterday through all of the mayhem, but i'm curious about the frequency with which we get a warning from a foreign government about someone who is here in our country that potentially has ties to terrorism. >> you know, that stuff does come in to federal agencies all the time really, alex.

reference the uncle who pleaded with his nephew, dzhokhar, give yourself up, give yourself up. and of course that is the fervent wish of law enforcement officials for a number of reasons. one is for the survival of dzhokhar tsarnaev because there is a manhunt for him and he will not escape that network of law enforcement at some point. this will not come to a good end. but also from a law enforcement perspective, we need to know who else is out there. he clearly had his brother as an accomplice but was there someone else involved. is this a cell? is it a local cell, home grown? is it foreign operated? is there an al qaeda or other splinter group connection? what did his brother do when he went back to russia, at least to russia? we know he arrived at an airport outside moscow. don't know where he went after that. his father is still -- returned to russia and was angry when called -- angry and grieving when called by reporters today, russian reporters, because -- had no knowledge of what his sons were doing, but was angry and thinking they had been hunted down as targets of some sort of consp

. dzhokhar tsarnaev has been charged with using a weapon of mass destruction. he was read his miranda rights from his hospital and he will have access to a lawyer. the 19-year-old has been described as cooperative during questioning. forced to write his answers or nod yes or no. he told officials he and his brother came up with the idea for the attacks on their own, finding internet resources to learn how to make bombs. he has been assigned three public defenders and could very well face the death penalty. a weekend search of dzhokhar's college dorm room turned up a black jacket, a white hat and similar to the one in the surveillance photos he was allegedly wearing. investigators also want to question tamerlan tsarnaev's wife. the couple initially met at a nightclub. she later converted to islam, dropped out of college and had a child with him. her attorney has said that she had no suspicions that her husband might be plotting an attack. hundreds of people stood in silence at copley square at 2:50 p.m. one week after the bombings. president obama marked the moment of silence from the white h
